The Biden administration’s latest big green spending project is $161 million to restore ecosystems on federal lands in 11 Western states including New Mexico and Colorado.

Twenty-one sites, described as restoration landscapes, were chosen by the Bureau of Land Management, headed by Director Tracy Stone-Manning.

“We worked hard to identify areas where restoration investments would be supported by states, tribes, and local communities and be leveraged by investments and partners,” Stone-Manning said on a press call. “The point here is to tackle threats to public lands at scale.”

Two sites are in Colorado and one in southern New Mexico.
